Goggins’ character is a mysterious and emotionless man named Mr. Stone, according to TV Guide. The study group encounters Stone at some point and are confronted with “a dangerous accusation, a tantalizing offer and a devious plan that will change the group forever.”
This being “Community,” that description could mean anything. Literally anything.
There is no word yet on when Goggins’ episode will air, but the episode is scheduled to start production next week. Presumably, this is a one-episode guest-starring role.
Whoever Goggins may be on “Community,” he is in good company. Morally corrupt men from critically acclaimed dramas seem to frequent the odd little NBC comedy. Previous guest stars include Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks (both of “Breaking Bad”), Michael K. Williams (“The Wire”), Patton Oswalt (also from “Justified”) and Josh Holloway (“Lost”).
“Community” Season 5 will premiere at some as-yet-undetermined point during the 2013-2014 season on NBC.
